“After visiting campus and meeting with Coach Hughes Stetson was instantly a place where I could see myself. I get a chance to play D-1 football, in the state of Florida, three hours away from where I grew up and, at the same time, receive a great education. I was also very interested in being a part of the team that brings football back to Stetson and having an opportunity to compete for playing time from day one.”
